Huawei South Africa is expected to launch its first global developer Programme called Shining Star in Cape Town.
The Chinese company has invited a number of developers including the media ahead of the launch on Thursday.
Huawei announced an investment of $ 1 Billion in support of the developer programme across global markets including South Africa.
Likun Zhao, Vice President of Huawei Consumer Business Group, Middle East & Africa says Huawei Mobile Services already has more than 570 million global users, including more than 15 million in Africa, with the business covering more than 170 countries.
“We provide a trusted, device-centric and inter-connected eco-system that improves the user experience, helping them to discover quality content while ensuring security and privacy.”
The developer programme, the first of its kind in South Africa, has been successfully implemented in other countries including Malaysia.
Shining-Star will focus on assisting local app developers who face a number of challenges, including lack of funding for app eco-systems, testing and monetisation of their apps.
